to which are added, The Established Plan of Lights for Steam Vessels, and, Regulations to avoid Collision

London, Charles Wilson, 1850

4to [28x22cm]. ppxvi 176

fine frontispiece view of HMS St.Vincent off The Lizard, four other plates, plus numerous hand-coloured illustrations through the text showing the sailing evolutions

a little foxing and marking and with light staining to the frontispiece, otherwise a good clean copy re-cased in the original cloth gilt, with new end-papers. lacking the protractor that would have been in a pocket on the original front paste-down

a highly regarded text on sailing tactics for the early Victorian navy, based largely from the author’s own twenty-seven years experience, but also drawing on David Steel’s work on naval tactics, published some fifty years previously
